"Africa is not poor, though its people are poor. [...] There is a dynamic in struggling every day to find solutions instead of crying… [As women in Africa,] we don’t realize that we are poor because we are busy finding solutions and struggling – and enjoying, still, one moment of life, one second, one hour, one day. Every moment is important! To be in the process of enjoying each moment as if it is the last one makes things very dynamic; and, I'm very happy for that way of life."
